Old School Labs Vintage supplements is a brand is focused at athletes and bodybuilders looking to build muscle and strength. Old School is an American company based in California, but supplements are also directly available to UK customers.
Vintage Blast is a pre workout powder only available in Blueberry Lemonade flavour, which if you find too sour you can try adding to a soda or health drink. It contains natural ingredients with no additives or artificial flavours, and it looks as if it might help improve performance and recovery as claimed. Vintage Blast is not as strong or stimulant heavy as many other pre workouts, but it does seem to work for many people and has received many positive reviews. Customer service seems good, so you should be able to get a refund if you are not satisfied with this supplement.
Potential side effects may include jitteriness, anxiety, irritability, sleeplessness, rapid heartbeat, dizziness, nausea, diarrhoea, heart palpitations, and increased bowel movements.
Vintage Blast is quite expensive. It is on sale from Amazon USA where it costs $37.99 for a tub containing 306g. According to the product information, this is sufficient for 20 servings.
Vintage Blast is not currently on sale via Amazon UK although as other products in the range are available, it is possible that this one will soon be on sale to UK customers.
There are lots of good points about Vintage Blast. This supplement seems popular with customers, safe and looks to be covered by a money-back guarantee. If you are looking at trying a pre workout supplement, this one could be a good choice.
However, many bodybuilders and athletes have questioned the need for pre workout supplements. Do you really need to take a strong caffeine hit before you work out and could you not achieve this buzz by simply drinking a strong cup of coffee before you start? In addition, you can obtain most of the ingredients by diet and keeping hydrated while you workout will also help you recover and maintain health.
Vintage Blast is also expensive. Many athletes (and the product directions) advise that once you build up tolerance, you need to take two scoops per serving. This means that your tub will only provide 10 servings. In addition, do this and you will be ingesting a whopping 500mg of caffeine.
All things considered, we cannot add this supplement to our approved list and therefore do not recommend Old School Labs Vintage Blast to our readers.
Vintage Blast is a pre workout powder that you just add to water in order to make a drink. It comes in one flavour Blueberry Lemonade, which as ever with matters of taste has divided customer opinion. However, it does not seem to be as sweet as many similar products on the market and is composed of natural ingredients, such as Stevia and pineapple juice as sweeteners.
Vintage Blast has two purposes. The first is to help fuel your workout from the start so that you train harder and improve your performance, so it contains caffeine and amino acids such as L Arginine and Citrulline L Malate which help widen blood vessels and increase nitric oxide.
The second part of the formula is to help you finish strong, so the idea is that it will help pick you up when you are flagging (thanks to delayed release). Vintage Blast also contains vitamins and electrolytes to help your body recover. Take a look at the ingredients tab to find out more.
Old School Supplements are endorsed by American sportsmen such as NFL player Benny Cunningham who claims to use Vintage Blast himself, and overall this company look to be extremely well known and reputable. Supplements are on sale via Amazon USA and UK which you can reach via the official Old School website, and the company is fully engaged with social media with nearly 700,000 followers on Facebook.
It is easy to contact and engage with the company, and we have mentioned their good customer service in previous reviews. Previous reviews include Vintage Burn, and Vintage Build, which is an alternative pre workout supplement.
The supplement claims to be the “World’s first two stage pre workout supplement”
According to the product information,
Vintage Blast™ has a unique two-stage formula that helps fight dependency and delivers steady energy and hydration during your entire workout.
The three key features:
- KEEPS YOU GOING; Vintage Blast™ helps you power through rigorous workouts and competitive events, regardless of their duration. Its unique two-stage formula allows you to start strong and finish strong, so that you can maximize every minute of every activity.
- PRODUCES RESULTS, NOT DEPENDENCY; By delivering a steady flow of ingredients and nutrients, Vintage Blast™ increases your overall work capacity and pumps, improves mental focus and drive, and reduces soreness and lactic acid buildup — without creating dependency.
- HOLISTIC FORMULA; Unlike regular pre-workouts, Vintage Blast™ also delivers nine key electrolytes and micronutrients that help with hydration, pH levels, and decreasing oxidation to enable peak performance and prepare for the recovery that follows.
Yes, it should certainly help. The caffeine content is in two parts; the first as caffeine anhydrous which should deliver an instant effect at 150mg – roughly the same as 2 cups of coffee. As this starts wearing off, the microencapsulated caffeine content should be released to help sustain you to the end of your workout.
In addition, L Citrulline Malate, Beta Alanine, and L Arginine should help with endurance and improve blood flow, with L Carnitine known to help muscle building and many other physical benefits. The second part of the formula is more to do with recovery, and includes vitamins and electrolytes to replace lost body fluids.
Serving size is equal to one scoop (15.26g) mixed with water.
Vitamins and Minerals
Electrolytes are salts and minerals in the blood that conduct tiny electrical impulses in the body, crucial for most of the body’s processes. When we lose body fluids such as through sweat, electrolytes are depleted. Source

A few customers have mentioned some of these side effects such as:

There are over 5000 Amazon reviews for Vintage Blast and as 75% are overwhelmingly positive, this is a lot of satisfied customers!
Even and steady training fuel. Product helped to push me through high metabolic training with ease. Vintage Blast helps you get that extra pump by pushing you on through.
Very Good Pre-workout supplement!! I have been using Vintage Blast for a few weeks now and have noticed a big difference at the gym. I am able to train harder for longer and experience no post workout crash….
This pre workout works great, doesn’t give you jitters from too much caffeine, keeps me focused and energized throughout my entire workout. The flavor is really sour at first but gets better with time. Already ordered my second bottle!
Some customers have not enjoyed the flavour, which is not as sweet as many other supplements on the market:
Pre workout gives a nice boost without the tingling sensation of other similar products. The only downside I can see is that the taste is not great. It’s not a bad taste at all, but could be improved.
Some customers have complained about the servings per container:
It’s a great product, my biggest complaint would be the amount of servings you get with this purchase. I believe this product needs two cycles to show its effect.
Some customers just don’t like it!
I tried this and found zero benefit. No boost in energy or anything else….
Yes, there is a money-back guarantee on offer with Vintage Blast and although there are no details about how long it is valid for, this company look very reasonable to deal with. You are advised to contact Old School Labs via the website. According to the information, you do not have to return unwanted bottles.
Old School Labs have responded to customer comments on Amazon, offering advice where needed and a refund to dissatisfied customers.
Vintage Blast is only available via Amazon USA at the time of writing. Although many Vintage supplements are on sale on Amazon UK, this one does not seem to be available.
